Hello. I wish to have a small conversation with my computer, lame I know but still cool. Basically i want it to respond with "hello" or "how are you?" if i tweet hello. How would i go about doing this? Could i ask it the weather and make it respond? Thanks!

It should be possible but you will have to make some changed in code :) interesting idea though

Yes, this is possible, but it will get you quickly in trouble with the twitter api limitations (if you don't know what it is just google for it...)

But for this you could for example use the facebook chat or any other instant messenger where you don't have such small limits.

There are already hundreds of bots (also in any .Net language) for this, just search a little bit and you will find.
